Creating this as a more “in view” way to keep everyone updated on the improvements here at mostoke.com
As most of you know this site was built for a good purpose but has been sitting for about 2 years with no maintenance, updates, new content, etc. Now that there is renewed interest in the site we’ve put it back on the development list and are in the process of upgrading the site completely.
For those who are having trouble with the menu, here is a list of all of the site pages.
We’re asking that everyone please post all technical issues here
We’ll be posting updates on everything that’s being worked on regularly.
Currently on the priority list are
Mobile user experience
SM features/functionality. – photo uploads, liking, quoting, sharing, counting, middle fingering, etc..July 22, 2019 at 3:14 pm #45521

1. Looks like we’re going to be getting a brand spanking new forum! Replacing the current one is going to be a quicker and better path to usability improvements than updating the current set up. Hoping to have it in place next week. timing really depends on how much customizing we have to do the provider we end up using. In the mean time, we’re still making small changes to the existing one.
2. We’re currently trying to find the best resources to pull in the data for the forecast page. I’d like to have all of the data lined up and the mechanics in place asap. Once we have that, making a nice display for it will be pretty quick.July 24, 2019 at 2:37 pm #45704

Haha. Exactly. It’s all good though, we wanted a reason to make this site a 23 footer but didn’t really have a reason. Now we do!
As an update – We got to test a good portion of the updates and changes last night. I’m pretty sure everyone is going to be really happy, it’s going to be a whole new world. Hopefully implementing everything next week.July 26, 2019 at 7:48 pm #45851July 27, 2019 at 7:03 am #45856
You know what we really need? That thing where you read through a thread…. then come back later when there are more posts…. and it automatically takes you to the first unread post instead of have to scroll through and find the where the new posts start.ShareJuly 27, 2019 at 7:30 am #45857July 27, 2019 at 8:04 am #45858
Increase the font size? DP, you old man. I’d expect as much from Barry.

Lol I guess I am. I’m not saying the font should be huge, just one size bigger is all.ShareJuly 27, 2019 at 10:25 am #45862
Honestly, the font size seems to be the same as the font on SI.ShareJuly 27, 2019 at 12:08 pm #45878
Ok a half a size bigger.ShareJuly 27, 2019 at 1:08 pm #45889
Mostoke- nothing but compliments from me, you deserve a lot of credit for all you are doing!! My suggestion to you is that you not try to reinvent the wheel, it’s 2019 and there are inexpensive templates out there. We just need to customize and tweak it to make it our own. You are on the ground floor of potentially phenomenal greatness . However you choose to monetize it. We all are at a crossroad that could lead to a new career for you or an associate. XenForo seems to be a leader in the forum software field- there are others… (no shame in that game) after all it’s not the arrow/ it’s the Indian- you are the Chief. Best wishes in whatever you decide.
